    We went to see the capsule of the 33 miners, but it wasn't! We saw things but not what expected of a museum but well the kids enjoyed it

    Sample of a part of the history of Chile and the indigenous peoples of this region. It also relates the episode of the rescue of the miners trapped in the mine San Jose

    A small sample of the mining history of the region, runs in an hour. There is information of the war of the Pacific and the Phoenix capaula, the original of the rescue of the 33 miners. Also consider the visit to the mine San Jose.

    It is a place rich in our history of Atacama. There are guided tours and much more to see. One can travel in history and really get excited for every situation that others lived... including in rescue of the 33 miners...

Where to stay in Copiapo

The most popular places to stay are just north of Copayapu/Route 5, with the rest of the town primarily residential. The town's pretty boutique hotels offer private pools and gardens, while simple, family-run guesthouses provide fewer frills but charge considerably less. If you're planning to use the town as a base for desert explorations, consider staying in a rented apartment.
